Ali Maalaoui obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers University in 2013. From 2013 to 2014, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Basel in Switzerland. Before joining Clark University, he was an associate professor of mathematics at American University of Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE.

Current Research and Teaching

Professor Maalaoui’s research area is in geometric analysis and calculus of variations with focus on conformal and CR geometries. This area involves the study of critical geometric PDEs exhibiting energy concentration and bubbling phenomena. Professor Maalaoui has background and experience in teaching Mathematics courses at all levels.
